Have a business that generates food? Consider diverting food waste with PreZero.
Sustainable solutions with premium service.
Organic waste is a major challenge that PreZero is positioned to solve. According to the USDA, it’s estimated that 30-40% of food is wasted in the US. When organic waste goes to landfills, it decomposes improperly and produces methane, a greenhouse gas with 80 times the warming power of CO2. PreZero is developing technology on an industrial scale that will instead turn this food waste into sustainable animal feed ingredients and soil nutrient products that support the circular economy.
PreZero is dedicated to the EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy, specifically Food Upcycling, which is the reuse of food or food by-products to create new ways of feeding animals. It’s important to note that Food Upcycling is a more efficient and preferred method when compared to more common alternatives such as anaerobic digestion (industrial uses), composting, and fuel generation (incineration).
We offer collection and de-packaging services for expired or damaged foods. Our programs primarily serve the following:
- Large grocery chains
- Food distribution centers
- Food manufacturers
All diverted food waste is tracked with our reporting system, so our clients can see the positive environmental impact of their efforts.
We welcome inquiries from franchise haulers interested in forming partnerships to upcycle the organic waste generated by their customers.
